Off to the Races

A painting that I have that has yet to be framed. 

A family tradition of going to The Steeplechase in my hometown of Aiken, SC.   Every year, my whole family descends on my parent's house, (it is like a holiday), to celebrate the Aiken Steeplechase.

My parent's have had the same spot on the rail for almost 20 years.. So tomorrow, along with 25,000 other people we will be watching the horses race and jump.  Eating, drinking and being merry.!!! It is so much fun, and I can't wait to see everyone.

I will have a recap of all the festivities on Monday...

Have a great weekend.

You can take a gal out of Kentucky, but you can't take the Kentucky out of the gal (being me!) I love your painting and horse racing too. Enjoy the time with your family and celebrate!
